Vote for chains, you'll get them.

But it won't be so easy trying to "vote" the chains off.



It is very easy. All you have to do is motivate the people to push for change.

I don't think you do? Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, France, all have citizens who think they have a happy life. By the numbers.

The chains happen regardless. Even you are saying that.

Have anything to say on the topic?

I'd rather not move the discussion over to the "kid table" by using childish antics.

Thats not a solution.

You cant let them decide when they dont have anything to decide.

How can they live there lifes if there are no jobs for them with no money?

No job = no money

No money = no food

No food= death.

USA has a population just over 300 million.

What happens when there are only 100 million jobs?

What do you do with the other 200 million ?

You cant just let them starve and die.

Its simple maths.

The only thing to decide is lay down and die or take up arms and take by force from the those who do have jobs.

And if 200 million are starving you think those 200 million wont take up arms against the 100 million?
And when it gets to that sort of uprising/revolutions you get catatrophes like the USSR, cuba,revolutionary france and maoist China.


I see so, you are of the mind that people cannot make decisions for themselves.

It's a very popular idea.


WHAT DECISIONS!

No jobs and no saftey net means NO MONEY!

So the only decisions are to quietly die or fight?
And history shows how they choose to fight.

And when the serfs rise up its the middle class like me that end up in the guillotine or in front of the fireing squad while the real elite skip out the country.

So unless you have a bunker, private army,your own island or you want a police state to keep those serfs down your going to need a better plan than just "let them eat cake".

Voting FOR socialism and thinking you can ever go back is like voting FOR the removal of the 1st Amendment then trying to speak out to get it back.

Face it, you just want socialism.

Nothing to be ashamed of.

There just will be those of us who have experienced it and found it, unpalatable.

Democratic Socialism and Communism are the exact same things,


It truly is.

Social engineering the environment to suit the mediocre of society.

They sure do love to claim they believe in evolution.

Their ideology is the complete antithesis of it.

Which is why we need to avoid what happens in places like Russia and China.
We don't want the masses riseing up and forceing there policy's on us.

Mao let them all die in his collective socialist utopian society, it was hundreds of millions.

Mao was a fascist dictator not a socialist. There is nothing resembling socialism in Mao's China.

Socialism is what Scandinavian society uses. Some of Europe as well.


Then tell me why the communists CALL themselves 'socialist' ???????????????????????



However, contrary to Western usage, these states do not describe themselves as "communist" nor do they claim to have achieved communism; they refer to themselves as Socialist states or Workers' states that are in the process of constructing socialism.[

Capitalism. Socialism. What's the third option?


There is no third option, we must choose.


Black and White again.

Of course there is a third option. We can have a system that uses both capitalism and socialism. We do that today, but we need a bit more socialism.


But once we vote for that "little bit more socialism" we'll never be able to vote it back.


Why can't we? If it's the will of the people it can be done.


You say we need "more Socialism"

Explain which areas and HOW...go


I don't do requests. As has been stated before, if you wish to converse on these topics you must be a bit more respectful in your approach.

a reply to: greencmp



As expected, you believe that we have an unhampered market economy.


I did not say that. Why must you continue to put words in my mouth and make things up? That is not a very intelligent debate tactic.


How was my question at all 'disrespectful"?

THAT...is considered 'disrespectful' to you?

Forgive my possible misinterpretation but, are you saying that not only can people not make decisions but that they actually have no decisions to make?

If you lived in Caracas, would you stay there if you were allowed to escape? Are there inward facing containment fences surrounding your Island?

Have you not considered leaving a place where no employment is possible?

By all means, rise up and take over if you can't escape but, I recommend voting with your feet. A plane ticket is less than a month's rent.

Apples and oranges. Horrible example.

Socialism is an economic theory that can be implemented in specific areas that do not have to affect the entire government infrastructure. If it doesn't work, you use the will of the people to change it.



Face it, you just want socialism.

Nothing to be ashamed of.


I have nothing to be ashamed of. I am a socialist and, of course, I want socialism. But I only want to implement it in certain specific areas. We can maintain individual rights and protect capitalist practices while using a socialist model for basic needs of the people.

Full-blown socialism is just Communism and that is not what I want.

What people call themselves has nothing to do with reality.

Why do conservatives call themselves conservatives? When they do the opposite?

The last conservative left office when Paul resigned years ago.

Maybe read Marx and Engels before you comment on stuff you don't know.

By the way I don't agree with national socialism. I just don't make idiotic comparisons and statements.

When they clearly are not.

The REALITY was communists call themselves SOCIALIST.

So you want 'half baked Socialism"...like...all the Social benefits...but not Socialism.

And you call yourself a Socialist?

Psssssttttt.....you're a Capitalist. Hate to break it to you. Don't be mad?
